Innovating automation with high standards and personal commitment.

Balluff is a medium-sized company - family run for four generations. Founded in Neuhausen on the Filder near Stuttgart, we have developed into a world oriented, leading global player. We are a company with tradition and customer relationaships that have established over years, which acts simultaneously as an important partner in innovations and as a pacesetter for our customers.

Because of this, our company opened up to the global market very early on. In the early 1980s, Balluff was the first – and for a long time, the only – producer of sensors with its own means of production in Brazil. Today, Balluff is no longer just at home in Neuhausen, but also has a presence in Europe, Asia, North and South America and in all other important markets. This has enabled us tounderstand and assist our customers better. We are able to provide them with exactly what they need: High-quality sensor, identification and networking solutions for all areas of automation.

When it comes to quality, Balluff definitely has its own ideas. We call it Balluff Quality. A higher standard which goes beyond applicable official standards.We offer this not only in production but also in consulting and services.

Our clients also feel thespecial commitment that we provide them with. We fulfill their requirements, accept their challenges and develop forward-thinking technologies for them. We know that if our clients are perfectly equipped for the future, then so are we. "Innovating automation" is therefore our motto.
